Palacio Municipal (Montevideo)


The Palacio Municipal de Montevideo (City Hall of Montevideo) is the seat of Montevideo government, located on 18 de Julio Avenue, in barrio Centro. It was designed by Uruguayan architect Mauricio Cravotto

In the 1930s, a tender was called for the construction of a building to house the then executive and legislative bodies of Montevideo, the Board of Directors and the Representative Assembly, although with the constitutional reforms these original institutions would be modified. It had to be built on the old property of the English Cemetery, a property acquired several years ago by the state in which it was originally intended to build a building to house the Executive branch of the government and the Judiciary.
